SHRED! vs. CrossFit
There are more similarities than differences between CrossFit and SHRED!, but the main difference is that in SHRED!, there’s an absence of heavy barbell work and technical movements as with CrossFit. This allows you to get down to mastering the basics while toning and sculpting your body. Getting people to move and breaking a sweat at high intensity work is the key to SHRED!’s success!
If you are seeking a fun workout designed for any fitness level, but aren’t interested in studying the intricate movements associated with CrossFit, then SHRED! is the perfect option for you.
What does a typical SHRED! include?
SHRED! classes are 45-60 minutes and typically start with a dynamic warm up and various mobility exercises designed to get your body ready to work safely and effectively. The main focus of the SHRED! training session is comprised of combinations of strength and cardiovascular exercises, which can employ any of the following, and more:
• Body weight exercises
• Kettle bells
• Medicine balls
• Jump Roping
• Resistance Band work
CrossFit is a strength and conditioning program that uses varied, intense workouts with the goal of improving fitness and general preparedness, created by former gymnast Greg Glassman. Work outs of the day (WOD’s) are typically short, 20 minutes or less, of all out exertion. They combine movements such as sprinting, jumping rope, rope climbing, weightlifting, tire drags, box jumps, and more using barbells, gymnastic rings, pull up bars, kettle bells, and medicine balls. Hour long classes typically start with a dynamic warm up, skill development/strength work and the high intensity WOD. Performance on each WOD and or Strength work is scored or timed to encourage friendly competition and to track individual progress. CrossFit training is entirely scalable and by doing so with loads, intensity and duration; the programming is appropriate for any individual who is willing to put in the work- regardless of fitness or ability level. Those new to CrossFit training take 6 Elements classes where they will go through the 9 foundational moves specific to CrossFit before beginning WOD classes. Coach Greg Glassman developed CrossFit training when he spent several years watching, working with and coaching all kinds of individuals – all the way from normal, “average looking joes” to competitive athletes. Coach Glassman took the best, most effective and challenging movements from various sports such as gymnastics, weightlifting and metabolic conditioning to create the CrossFit training methodology. “In implementation, CrossFit is quite simply the ‘sport of fitness,’” Glassman said, according to the CrossFit website. “We’ve learned that harnessing the natural camaraderie, competition and fun of sport or game yields an intensity that cannot be matched by other means.”

Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu is a martial art, combat sport, and self-defense system that focuses on grappling with an emphasis on ground fighting. BJJ promotes the concept that a smaller, weaker person can successfully defend against a bigger, stronger assailant by using leverage and proper technique in order to achieve positional dominance. The BJJ practitioner takes the fight to the ground and applies joint locks and chokeholds to defeat their opponent.Jiu-Jitsu is unique in that it can be practiced at (or near) full strength with very little chance of injury due to the practitioner’s option to submit or ‘tap-out’ when he or she feels uncomfortable. BJJ training can be used for sport grappling tournaments/ MMA competition or self-defense.
Classes will start off with agility and calisthenic style movements to warm up the body. The instructor will bring the student through drill training; IE Gound positioning, submission techniques, defense, reversals sweeps, etc. Depending on your experience you will then go through scenario rolling or live rolling to work on the application of techniques taught during class.
